Transportation Assistance Program (TAP)
What is the Transportation Assistance Program (TAP)?
TAP is a rural transportation program that provides service to older adults and people with disabilities who are outside of the DART service area. TAP clients are picked up at their door and delivered to their destination or if needed, transferred to another transportation provider – DART, Everett Para Transit, or ACCESS.
TAP provides safe and reliable transportation for older adults and people with disabilities who live outside the DART service area. TAP’s wheelchair-accessible vehicles connect people to services, health care, senior centers, shopping, recreation and more.

TAP links people to essential services that include; healthcare, employment, congregate meal sites, shopping, schools, senior centers, recreation and more. Access to safe and reliable transportation makes a tremendous difference in our guests’ lives enabling them to continue living independently.
